The performance was enthusiastically received by the audience members, many of whom are on fixed incomes or are low-wage earners. Thanks to a generous grant from the MCC Community Benefit Festival Grant Project and the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, JCE was able to pay its choreographers for their wonderful work, which was enjoyed by many who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend a live performance. JCE was grateful to MCC for the opportunity to keep jazz thriving in the New York community!
This program was made possible in part by the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. All of JCE’s programs are made possible in part by its corporate sponsor, Salon Ishi.
